Hughmans sponsors Svalbard expedition

17th February 2016

In 2016, Hughmans will be a sponsor of an expedition to Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic ocean. The team from Oxford University will be retracing the footsteps of an expedition in 1923. The original expedition included Andrew Irvine who would later accompany George Mallory in his famous attempted ascent of Mount Everest. They will use state of the art equipment to track the impact of global warming on the region in the last 93 years. Areas of Svalbard has been widely overlooked by researchers and the team hope to gain vital insight into the impact of environmental change on the landscape. Hughmans’ logo will appear on the equipment used to provide the team with 24 hour emergency response, which will be vital for protecting the expedition from Svalbard’s polar bears. The expedition will result in a documentary feature film and a range of scientific data to enhance our scientific understanding of climate change.

We are proud to be contributing to this journey and wish the team every luck on their adventure. Find out more about the expedition here.
